Seal Lion and his harem - La Jolla, San Diego California
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

Awhh! Super cute 🙂 🙂 Is there room for me to bask on the end there? Though I guess it’d be a tad smelly.
I didn’t notice any particular smells on this day, maybe the wind was in the right direction! It is lovely to see them in the wild as opposed to in a zoo.
He seems to have them all under control
He does indeed.
He is a proud as … a peacock? This expression doesn’t seem to fit for a sea lion so I checked if there were other idioms I could use. Apparently, there is an outdated saying: He is proud below the navel. I think that might be it. 😀
Really? 😀 😀
How about “the cat that’s got the cream”
He does have a certain smug look!
He looks very pleased with himself.
Indeed! Cat that’s got the cream 🙂
He certainly looks very happy with his ‘ladies’. I don’t think I could cope with that many wives myself!
Great shot, Jude.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Just learn to bark Pete!
Aren’t they an active enthusiastic bunch! 😆
Worn out springs to mind.
Are these all his wives and children? 🙂
I suspect that sea lions don’t believe in marriage, but these are all his!
Love this Jude. It does remind me a little of the boychild’s much younger days when he’d wear himself out tearing around, then just collapse on me afterwards.
They start out so cute and then lose it all!
